"Kate's advice and support mean the world to me."

 

As a child Lorraine always read, wrote and dreamt of becoming a published author but for a mixed-race kid growing up on a housing estate in Essex that sometimes felt like an impossibility.

Now a successful published author, Lorraine is also co-founder of #ukmgchat, which enables writers, agents, editors and publishers of middle grade fiction to share their experience and expertise. She’s also a member of Golden Egg Academy and SCBWI, (and winner of the Crystal Kite 2018 for UK & Ireland) and is passionate about encouraging young dreamers to believe in themselves.

Lorraine lives in Essex with her family.

HOW LORRAINE BECAME KATE’S CLIENT

I first met Kate on a Twitter chat and she was so funny and lovely I sent my manuscript off to her the next morning. When she asked to meet me I feared she couldn’t be as amazing in real life but she totally was!  I managed to play it cool and asked for a few days to consider her offer but I knew straight away that she was the one for me!


LORRAINE ABOUT KATE

I’ve been so lucky to have Kate as my agent. Not only is she lovely and funny and charming to be around, but she’s also tremendously efficient, hard-working, honest and loyal. Kate has exceeded all my expectations of an agent and her advice and support mean the world to me.


KATE ABOUT LORRAINE 

Lorraine’s imagination and voice are unique. She is brilliant, funny and kind and also very modest.  I am especially proud of her for the inspiration she is to young readers and writers from diverse backgrounds.
